LION TV: Library Information Literacy Online Network

Welcome to LION TV, the Library Information Literacy Online Network (LION) devoted to helping you learn all about the world of Information. Content for LION TV comes from the ANimated Tutorial Sharing Project (ANTS), an international collaborative screencasting and video tutorial project. Whether you are wanting to learn how to do Research, use Google more effectively, understand what is an authoritative web site, or learn about a myriad of issues related to information (such as Privacy, Copyright, and Plagiarism); this ever-growing network will assist you with your information needs.

If you want to learn more about any of the e-resources, or collections, described in a program, consult your local library - be it a Public, Academic, School, Government or Special Library. Most have access to content held in the Deep Web (i.e. online content that is only available if you pay for it - and which - is often more authoritative.) These libraries can assist you with access, accounts, research, or with acquiring physical materials from their library or other libraries.

LION TV is happy to assist you with your quest to become Information Literate citizens. View, share and comment on any and all content. Get a library card. Become informed and stay informed.
